Supernatural Prison Romance

I didn’t mean to cross over into Faerie. It was an accident. And now… now I’m in jail.

Fairy jail. It’s a thing.

When I refused the attentions of a Seelie noble, I earned myself a one-way ticket to Siúcra, the most infamous prison in the Fae Queen’s Court.

I’m still reeling over the fact that the fae are real. That Faerie is a real place, and that there are real consequences to being a human surrounded by the amazingly gorgeous—if also amazingly heartless—creatures in this world.

Their cruelty doesn’t stop after I’m captured. Turns out, I’m the only human in my wing of the prison. And, I find out pretty quickly, the only female.

Ah, crap.

Thank goodness for Rys. He might not be the friendliest cellmate, but so long as I don’t ask him questions about why he’s locked up, he’s willing to watch my back. Know what? That totally works for me, especially since I can’t seem to keep my eyes off of his.
